Since the last patch ive went from about 100 fps in crowded city places to about 30 fps in the open world with fpses dropping even further / laggning badly when i enter instances and start to attacking a larger pack of mobs, anyone else got similar issues?
tried the usual, delete cache, delete addons, delete WTF folder, update GPU drivers (even tried the 12.9 beta, no change) with a full driver sweeper clean...
at this point i'm up for trying voodoo to get it working smoothly again.
thats why i now running 32 bit client and has set the graphics settings from high to good
it do still lacks a little bit, but helped
My System /
Windows 7 64 bit
8 GB DDR3
XFX Radeon 6850 (1GB)
Intel Core i7 2600k 3,4 Ghz
At one point I updated Catalyst, got the new application profiles, repaired WoW and deleted Cache. Somehow this worked, but after WoW crashed to desktop once I got the problem back.
EDIT: Is anybody having these problems with an NVIDIA card?
i would also like to point out that turning OFF xfire got me to a 'playable' 20 - 30 fps. turning it on made it much MUCH worse. if you're desperate to get into the game setting yourself to windowed or windowed (fullscreen) to kill xfire might be a plan temporarily.
We're investigating issues with poor performance post patch, however we've been unable to confirm any particular causes yet, can you please try the following steps and let us know the results?
If anything is overclocked on your system, please do revert them to standard clock speeds.
If you're on an Nvidia card, try using the previous drivers, we've had some reports of issues with the latest ones.
Also, make sure no other applications are interfering:
Then see what happens?
its like it only is with people with AMD videocards. like yesterday i notice i was running wow on single gpu instead of 2 gpu's (AMD 5870) single has better performance then 2. but still the low fps not like before. hope to hear more about the investigating....
I don't think I've updated my nVidia driver since the launch.
Will keep checking this thread for an answer, god's speed!
